2 out of 5 eggsInsane install

Pros: Temperature reduced quite a bit (33%) over my stock heatsink/fan.

Cons: The installation of this unit is ridiculous. I've built over a dozen PCs, rebuilt car engines, built decks, fences, etc. I know how to work a screwdriver! It took almost 3 hours to install this thing. A few tips:

1. Run the screws through the threads on the backing plate. The holes on my backing plate were poorly tapped. Also, this will show you which holes aren't actually vertical

2. Remove the fan during install

3. Fully compress each screw spring. This will allow the screw to thread into the back plate more easily/cleanly. Shortening the spring a bit by fully compressing it doesn't affect the tension it generates.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me..

Pros: Keeps my Phenom II x3 (OC x4) very cool under normal use

Thermaltake fan isn't loud in my chassis

upgradeable to a dual fan design

Cons: Higher priced than some competitors, but you get what you pay for

Its kinda big, but as long as your rig can handle it, its not really a con.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the installation wasn't too insane. I have a mATX so my space was a little more cramped; I did have to remove my video card and the fan from the unit, plus I made sure to compress the anchor springs down a bit with a pair of pliers because they are wound pretty tight -as other reviewers have mentioned.

1 out of 5 eggsImpossible for me to install

Pros: Good quality workmanship and material. Fits many motherboards.

Cons: I have assembled 4 computers from scratch with not the least trouble, and consider myself somewhat of an expert. However, on trying to install this cooler, I found it IMPOSSIBLE. Removing old backplate, installing CPU, thermal grease, positioning Thermaltake backplate, and putting the proper clips on the cooler base were routine. However, this cooler requires 4 spring screws to go through the cooler clips, and some distance to the motherboard holes and Thermaltake backplate. The first problem was to align the cooler clips, motherboard holes, and. hidden backplate. I solved this by putting 2 screws, without the springs, in diagonally to align everything. But when I tried to put the third screw in with the spring, it took excessive pressure to overcome the spring enough to reach the baseplate and screw it in a little. The cooler immediately tilled toward the spring. It was literally impossible to tilt the cooler back enough to install the 4th screw with spring. If I could have done this, I would have still had the same problem with the other two screws when adding springs to them. Other coolers usually have a section attached above the motherboard. And this is what the cooler is attached, often with a lever to easily apply the needed spring pressure. I later found that other websites also warn against this problem. I haven't even mentioned the danger of all this pressure to the CPU and motherboard. Fortunately, they weren't damaged. Thermaltake trying to save money has made a defective product. I told their rep this problem is very severe and needs recall. Rep said will pass it on, but can only RMA for the same product.

Other Thoughts: If the above wasn't enough, I sent 3 rebates together to 3 companies including this one. The other 2 have confirmed receipt of the rebate; not Thermaltake. This used to be a good company. Now trying for worst around.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi dspear,

I believe I had spoken to you over the phone and I did in fact pass the information to our HQ for review.

In regards to the rebate, we actually hire a 3rd party company for rebate processing which means that we do not have any of your paperwork. If you have not yet contacted the rebate company please do so at 1-800-286-9146.

If for some reason they fail to help you, please contact our customer support team immediately so that we can step in and assist you in dealing with the rebate company.

Thank you!

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but installation is a pain

Pros: Whisper quiet fan. Has kept my processor very cool under heavy load so far. Also like the option of being able to add a second fan if I want to in the future.

Cons: Installation could be tremendously easier!
I've used TT products for over a decade now. I've been a satisfied customer this entire time. This unit, however, makes me want to consider switching to another brand.
What were they thinking when they designed this? I shouldn't need three hands to install a CPU fan. I understand making sure the surface stay tight together, but they could have done the same thing with springs that compress easier. Get your stuff together TT!

Other Thoughts: Like other reviewers, only recommend this for a new build. I wouldn't recommend this to novice builders either. I've been building PCs for 17 years and this has to be the most difficult installation for a CPU fan ever!

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the purchase

Pros: Very affordable, and works perfectly.

Cons: Every now and then the fan will not turn on when the computer sets up. This is easily solved by re-starting the computer. Not really a con, just can be an inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: I have used this CPU fan for over six years now. Still works fine.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: none

Cons: The pipes are crammed into slots cut in the heat sink side facing the cpu and lapped. There is no complete surface and it can NEVER be a machined flat surface. DO NOT BUY. I will never buy a thermal take product again EVER. AND NEWEGG should hang its head for not showing that side (the cpu side) of the heat sink. Nothing but lies and trash.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooling medium install

Pros: Great Cooling. Nice a quiet and keeps my CPU well under temp under heavy extended load.(folding app) You get a lot of cooling for a good price. Plus it looks nice in the case.

Cons: Harder than average install. I installed this one as a replacment for my LGA775 Intel Core2 duo. Very hard to install in the case event with back panel access. Its a very sprung system for good reason so take your time doing the install. Easy way is to have the board out.

Other Thoughts: I really like the option for a second fan with the included brackets but I can't see the need unless you are OC.

2 out of 5 eggsI wouldn't buy it again...

Pros: It works fine

Cons: Installation was PAINFUL

Other Thoughts: This was the most difficult non stock cooler I have ever installed. Instructions were clear however the act of holding the unit stable on the processor while aligning the 4 screw holes AND compressing the tension spring AND using a screwdriver (in the shallow screw head) to affix the cooler to the under board bracket was extremely difficult. Maybe if I had 4 hands the size of a child instead of 2 adult sized hands it might have been easier. After about 20 minutes and moderate hand lacerations I finally got it attached.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Keeps CPU real cool, nice looking fan, can upgrade to add a second fan.

Cons: A little hard to install, since you had to take the entire motherboard out to install the bracket.

Other Thoughts: i7-2600 was running about 65C with stock Intel fan, now running at around 30C

3 out of 5 eggsNice 4 heat pipe cooler, horrible mounting design

Pros: 4 heat pipes in a midsize cooler, good direct contact with CPU.

Easy fan mounting with extra clips for push/pull.

On AMD CPU's it can mount horizontally or vertically.

Overall good quality of materials & hardware.

Good midsize air cooling potential for those willing to spend a little extra time and money.

Cons: Terrible mounting. The quality of the hardware is good, and the brackets/backing plate are well designed, but we're expected to bolt it all together at once which is ridiculous at best. The backing plate should be mounted separately, then the heatsink to the plate. In this case, even if the backing plate was mounted first, the screw design makes it nearly impossible to secure the heatsink without it tilting/moving etc. Good cooling potential is almost negated by poor fastening. To make it work, you must spend more effort & money.

Other Thoughts: Not recommended for people on a short schedule, low patience, or the mechanically challenged.

Only recommend for NEW builds or for someone who is planning to remove the motherboard. Nearly impossible to mount on an already installed MB. If you like a challenge, go for it.

To make the install easy as it should be, expect to spend a few bucks on new screws/nuts/washers and maybe drill some holes.

Helps to know your way around tools, and enjoy minor customization. I mounted this on an AMD AM3 board cooling a Phenom II X4 830 which will be overclocked after I'm sure it's stable, and after enough thermal cycles.
